The Book group has been 'going strong' from 2011 at the very outset of our U3A. We have covered about 30 books in the last 4 years.
We try to choose our books 3 months in advance (one per month) and a system of group member's recommendations with occasional reference to Book Charts and Reviews.
The group is limited to a maximum of 10 members as the group meets in the Group Leader's house. This is a benefit as we find that a smaller number is better for meaningful discussions. As a treat there is usually a cup of coffee or tea with something tasty to accompany it.

Group Leader's comments
"I have been delighted with the range of books that the group has read, many which I would not normally have selected. You will enjoy reading the books and get a much wider appreciation of different styles and subjects. The discussion can illuminate the books just by hearing the different points of view. If you love reading this is the group for you."
